Well, that had to come! Of course testing is vital, but when learning the basics of programming it simply gets in the way. First be comfortable with the language and system, then add testing.

This obviously refers to the integrated testing as used in much Rails development, and for good reason. Constantly testing and checking your code is absolutely vital in all programming from the very start, relying on integrated testing (a programming effort in itself) is never going to replace that. Learn one first, then the other.

Hi, you could also try following this book:

Given your minimal knowledge of programming, it's probably best if you skip all the testing parts (which take up more than half) and concentrate on coding.
Wrong, testing is a vital part of the process, do not skip it.

So, my very basic and simple
question is where do I start?
railstutorial.org (free to use online if you click the link in the text on the home page).

http://guides.rubyonrails.org/

Use a Mac or Linux (possibly Ubuntu). It is possible on Windows but can be problematic, and you will find it more difficult to get help.

Use rvm to manage ruby and gems.

You should also look at some tutorials on html and sql and jQuery/javascript.
